Bobby Brown most certainly should be inducted. First of all his personal struggles should not be used against him. When nearly all of the other legends inducted have had issues. Whitney Houston whom I love, was damn near 30 years old when she married Brown 6 years her junior. When it's all said in done there is no denying his impact on Hip Hop and R&B. He created his own lane bringing New Jack Swing movement to mainstream without compromising his music integrity. Bobby Brown's influence is clearly seen in todays stars such as Usher and Chris Brown.

I personally feel that he should be inducted because he has tremendous impact in music. People need to stop bringing up the past. Let it go, they've both moved forward, and now its time for others to do the same. Bobby is in a different place now, and let's accept that. I just want Bobby to finally have the respect that he rightfully deserves.

Yes he should because he is one of the best of all time. B Brown and N.E 4Life.....

I believe Bobby has made a huge impact on music and people all over the world!When he's on stage he brings the full package! His concert tours have set many trends in the industry for peers to follow! His stage was always Live with the full Band, lots of dancers, props etc. and he is a true Entertainer, he gives a complete show and you get your moneys worth. Let alone he belongs to one of the worlds biggest groups, NE! They all deserve it!!

Highly unlikely- as reflected by the percentage chances.

He should be in the Hall of Fame for the simple reason of his huge contribution to the R&B and Hip-hop Music ...he was the one that linked R&B to RAP he was the one that changed the game in a brilliant way that tile this day singers like User and Chris Brown are doing what they are doing now ... I must be in the Hall of fame ...It's a shame if he is not really!

Bobby Brown is the only person that changed the R&B Game from what it was, the only Original Game changer Is Bobby Brown other are still doing what has already been done ..Don't try to bring his personal life into what he has contributed to the Music world If it wasn't for Bobby Brown we wouldn't have seen the likes Of User,Omarion,Marion,Chris Brown and other Today's R&B Stars ....Without a doubt he will be In the Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame weather we chose him now or not ...a time will come where People would start to see him beyond their hateful eyes.

Bobby Brown is not only a founding contributor to R&B music, but a legend in his own right. Definitely! He deserves to be inducted into the Hall of Fame. I love you Bobby...

I think he should be part of the rock and roll fame because he did make good songs, in spite of his actions. Bobby is not the only one that that had problems behind him. What ever happend to him and whitney is the past and they both are moving on...So he should be because he is the king of the stage remember! :p!!..

The funny thing about Bobby Brown is that had he had a more substantial run and better control of his personal life, he could've been considered a legitimate candidate. He has the great distinction of being on the cusp of both the boy band revival with New Edition and New Jack Swing with his solo career. Unfortunately hes best known nowadays for being Whitney Houstons ex-husband/drug dealer. I'd consider him a great candidate for the hall of wasted talent.

If we're keeping people out of the hall of fame b/c of their personal lives, the majority wouldn't have been inducted. The fact of the matter is RnB music wouldn't be what it is today without Bobby Brown. I really don't see how they could justify keeping him out.
